Cobar residents are being invited to join the Walk4William Tyrrell, a national initiative that aims to help find three year old William who went missing from his grandmother’s home last September.
Local woman Sharni Clark is coordinating the local walk to be held this Saturday on the anniversary of his unexplained disappearance.
Mrs Clark said the 2km walk will commence from the car park at the back of Burgess SUPA IGA.
Three year old William went missing from his grandmother’s backyard, at around 10.30am, at Kendall on the NSW mid-north coast on September 12, 2014.
His story has touched the hearts of many, in Australia and around the world, who all have one common goal, to see this little boy brought back home.
Mrs Clark said because Cobar is on a main cross roads and if someone has got him, they may have travelled through town, and someone might of seen something.
“I just think it would be horrific for the your little boy to go missing and not know what has happened to him.
“Someone might of seen something and not realised they have seen it and it could spark someone’s memory to report it.
“Even if it’s just little things, it will all help,” she said.
Mrs Clark said Crime Stoppers believe William is still alive.
Since William’s disappearance there has been plenty of publicity, all of which reminds us that there is a little boy out there who is without his family.
Mrs Clark said participants are encourage to dress up in Spiderman suits or in red and blue (Spiderman was William’s favourite character and is what he was wearing when he went missing).
“But it doesn’t matter if you don’t as long as you still turn up,” she said.
Mrs Clark said local police will be giving a safety awareness talk for children and also be speaking about stranger danger on Saturday.
“There are posters up in the shop windows explaining what the walk is about and William’s story for people to read.
“If anyone would like more information they are welcome to approach me,” Mrs Clark said.
